LL Teams With Jim Jones; Launches Book Tour

  Queens, New York Hip-Hop icon LL Cool J and Harlem rapper Jim Jones have collaborated on a new track for LL Cool J’s upcoming album, Exit 13.

The album, which features appearances by Jim Jones, Method Man and Lil’ Kim thus far, is due in stores this year. [Jim wrote his verse with] No pen or nothing, he just looked up in the air and just came up with some heat," LL Cool J said during an interview with BBC Radio 1’s Tim Westwood in New York.

 

"The album is serious." The rapper revealed that one of his keys to longevity was his ability to evolve with Hip-Hop music. "There’s a lot of room out there for everyone to get what the need to get. Dreams don’t have deadlines, so you might as well embrace the new era the new time and the new groups and all that. Don’t be standing up under Niagara Falls saying ‘wait a minute’ cause it’s going to keep flowing anyway. You might as well get with the program all that and rock out and enjoy yourself and live life."

 

In addition to releasing a new album, the rapper is hard at working promoting his fitness book LL Cool J’s Platinum Workout.

 

The book, which was released in December, details LL’s workout regimen.

 

According to LL, born James Todd Smith, the book will inspire readers to workout, while building a healthy physique.

 

"This workout program changed my life -- both physically and emotionally," LL Cool J told AllHipHop.com shortly after plans for the book developed. " Now I want to share with others how they can achieve their own personal version of a Platinum Body."

 

On January 6, LL Cool J will appear at Borders Books and Music on Cooper Ave in Glendale New York.

 

He will head to Los Angeles for an appearance at a Borders Books and Music and two stops at Barnes & Noble, one in Los Angeles and one in Oakland.

 

The rapper concludes the tour with stops throughout Illinois, with his final appearance taking place at the Dusable Museum of African American History in Chicago.
